Klassik

Summer

Review by Gary Hill

The latest in the seasonal series of EPs from rapper Klassik, this has some good stuff, but also some moments that feel awkward. Still, overall, this lands on the quite strong side of the equation. It’s not as solid as some of his others, though.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2015  Volume 3 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
STAGESlayer (Feat. B~Free)

There is a cool old school soul groove on this piece. Some of the number feels a bit awkward, though. A lot of that comes from the electronic elements.

F***s With Us
This gets some definite parental advisories. Of course, the edits I had to make to the title to include it here should tell you that. I love the rap on this. The meter and rhyme just work so well. The whole song is stronger than the opener was.
Never Belong
I really like the keyboard flourish that starts this. As it works out from there, though, this is a bit on the awkward side. Still, the rapping is good. As it works out to a soulful groove, it’s an improvement, too. It really does get quite magical in terms of old school soul sound later.
